Know How To Check If Your Permanent Drivers License Is Ready For Pick Up

When renewing an old drivers license, you automatically receive a temporary one on the day and you will be informed that the permanent drivers license will not be ready for pick up till at least two months from the day o renewal.

This might leave you in a dilemma of visiting the FRSC office every now and then only to be informed that your permanent drivers license is still unavailable.

You can however ascertain when it will be ready for pick up by simply following this simple step.

Type ‘NDL STATUS License number‘ and send to 33811. e.g ‘NDL STATUS FNJ59241AH78’.

Once you send this text, you will automatically receive an update informing you if your drivers license is ready or not.

Please note that at the expiry of your two month temporary license notice, if the permanent one is still your ready, you will have to visit the FRSC office in order to extend your notice period.
